Eastmoreland's "Questions & Answers" on Historic District
The Eastmoreland neighborhood is working toward a Historic District designation. It is on track to secure this listing and protection by mid 2017, joining Irvington and Ladd's Addition as historic Portland neighborhoods that will have protected themselves from the growing wave of house demolitions.
Eastmoreland has put together a Questions & Answers guide on historic districts, with detailed answers to common questions. Some of this Q&A applies only to Eastmoreland (e.g. references to "Eastmoreland Design Guide") but the discussion of Historic District is useful reading for other neighborhoods, like Laurelhurst.
